The Best Keto Mexican Food Recipes

Some of the most popular Mexican or Tex-Mex recipes you’d find in a restaurant are not known for being keto-friendly. Tortillas, rice, beans…it’s basically a big carb-fest!

My husband grew up with Mexican and Cuban food, so it’s something that our own family loves too. Fortunately, my husband is kind of a genius for creating better-for-you versions of our favorite comfort foods…and he’s shared quite a few on the blog.

In addition, we rounded up some of the best Keto Mexican recipes from our food blogger friends. This collection of recipe is perfect for Taco Tuesday, Cinco de Mayo…oh heck…anytime!!

I know, I know, holidays and parties can make anyone on a diet nervous but this year, you’re going to be ready! From cocktails to desserts, you can join in on the sipping and sampling with the rest of them. They’re all super delicious AND won’t have you feeling guilty at all! 

I hope you enjoy our collection of Keto Cinco de Mayo recipes as much as we do!

Now, to be fair, these are not what I would call “authentic” Mexican food, because there have been modifications made to reduce the carb count. That being said, these low carb Mexican-inspired recipes are delicious and flavorful, just like the originals!

¡Buen provecho!
